Impressionistic Exercise in Art

"Lilac Brollies" by artist Marie Theron
405mm x 305mm oil on canvas board
SOLD

I quite liked an earlier painting that I did in 2011, called "Busy Lizzies". On seeing a photo of figures in movement that I would love to paint, I immediately reverted back to that cool fresh style of painting. The new one is simply called "Lilac Brollies" to rhyme with the earlier name. To crown it all, the owner of the first painting, wants to buy the new painting as well.

The freshness of the Great Masters of Impressionist painting, will always be appealing, and I decided to add some "wiki" images of Monet's umbrella ladies to this post for everyone to enjoy again and again!

  2. Thank you, Hilda! Oh those Monets....I really want to try the style, so difficult!!! My right-hand girl, maybe alone against a sky? The world offers so many ideas!

  3. Oh I can sure see why your collector wanted this second painting to go along with the first (and quite honestly, I'd love them both myself!). Thank you for posting the Monets. I do not get enough chance or time to study more of the Masters' works.

    1. Hi Liz, there will be "en plein air" all-day painting with lunch at my home on October 5. It is organised by Vindigo. Would you like me to send you details?
